Porter Re-signs With Blues

Former Sioux captain Chris Porter has re-signed with the St. Louis Blues.

Porter, who has been with the Blues for his entire professional career, signed a one-year contract worth $600,000 if he’s in the NHL and $105,000 if he’s in the AHL.

Blues reporter Andy Strickland wrote earlier today that Porter should have a good shot at sticking with the Blues next season.

Last year, Porter played 45 games with St. Louis, tallying three goals, four assists and seven points. It marked his first pro season that was spent primarily in the NHL.

    Doug Armstrong had a hand in putting Ports on the USA team this past year. He’s also been publicly vocal about Chris’ play for the Blues, when called upon. I have a very strong feeling that he’ll make the club out of the gate, as he was the last player cut before last season, and that was because Tyson Strachan was on a 1-way deal last year. The Blues have no ownership, and will be looking at Chris to play 4th line minutes, as they continue to be the Salary Cap Floor. It’s pretty sad when a team sells out all 41 Home games, and still loses money, or so they say, and therefore can’t even spend a few million over the Cap Floor! Army’s going to be having a tough time filling out his Forwards roster with Perron still suffering from his concussion, and Tarasenko declining to buy out his last year in the KHL. It’ll be very easy to get Porter into 40+ games this year, heck 3rd line minutes he might be playing if 1 forward goes down!
